In the morning of 19 September, Russians attacked Lviv Region with drones. The attack lasted about 2.5 hours, Lviv Mayor Andriy Sadovyy reported on Facebook and the head of the Regional Military Administration Maksym Kozytskyy on Telegram. Initially, two wounded were reported, but later the body of a dead man was found.

As of 10:15 a.m., the body of a dead man who worked in a warehouse was found under the rubble, Mayor Sadovyy said.

"Unfortunately, a dead man who worked here was found under the rubble. Three warehouses were destroyed. These are warehouses with windows, household chemicals, as well as a room where the CARITAS-SPES charity mission stored humanitarian aid.

The total area of the fire is about 10,000 sq.m.," he wrote on Facebook.

As of 8:49 a.m., the head of the RMA said that the fire in the warehouses was still being extinguished. A total of three hits to industrial warehouses in Lviv were recorded. A 26-year-old man who was in the warehouse at the time of the attack was hospitalised. He is in moderate condition. There was also a woman at the site who did not need hospitalisation.

"There are fires in four locations in the warehouses. The fire is still being extinguished. I want to emphasise that these are ordinary industrial warehouses. Nothing military was stored there," he said.

Immediately after the attack, the city authorities reported that the warehouses were hit.

"As a result of the strike, we are recording a fire in an industrial warehouse in Lviv. All relevant services have arrived at the site. We are working according to the protocol," Sadovyy wrote.

He also said that a man had been pulled out of the warehouse from the rubble. Operational work continues.

"So far, we know about one person who was injured in the attack," the mayor added.

"The threat is over. According to the updated data, two people, a woman and a man, were rescued from the rubble in Lviv. The woman is preliminarily without injuries. The man is in a serious condition. More information will follow later. We are grateful to our Air Defence. Today they have accepted a very difficult challenge with dignity," said Maksym Kozytskyy, head of the Lviv Regional Military Administration.

A prisoner-agent of the FSB who was looking for spotters was recently exposed in Lviv Region.
